Farmers who say "I've seen it all." haven't been to the New York Farm Show. More than 420 exhibitors will roll out a host of new equipment, plant products and technologies targeted for Northeast farmers and livestock producers.

Here are details, submitted by exhibitors, on a few that may tickle your curiosity. Exhibit locations are at the end of each item. The building codes are: CP (Center of Progress), HT (Horticultural Building), I (International Pavilion), D (Dairy Building), S (Science Building).

Auto-steer guidance
Ag Junction's e-Drive XD and e-Drive XC auto-drive guidance systems from Outback Guidance provide centimeter accuracy with wide compatibility for tractors, sprayers and combines via hydraulic or electric steering interfaces. Booth CP-123.

Bunker cover/barrier
Poly Excel's Polydress 2-in1 O2 barrier is a polyethylene silage bunker cover with designed-in oxygen barrier for one-step installation. The oxygen barrier clings to silage, separating from outer protective cover to produce higher quality silage. Booth: CP-178.

Calcium crop nutrient
Farming Solutions/Agri-Dynamics introduces Cal-Sentials. It's a calcium complex blend of geothermic limestone, kelp and fish meal, ocean water extracts, compost tea, molasses and humic acids for foliar crop application to improve root and fruit development. Booth: D-720.

Front-mounted hay rake/merger
ROC SLR's RT840 merger can be front-mounted on a tractor or windrower and can change operating widths from 19 feet to 27 feet on the go, thanks to a double hydraulic rock arm system. Unlike a rake, the merger conveyor lifts hay instead of dragging it. Booth: S-ROC.

Ground-tracking tedder
Poettinger's HIT4.54T tedder puts four Dynatech rotors to highly productive work with perfect ground tracking and ideal protection of the sward and forage. Its jockey wheel can be shifted frontward, backward, left or right. Booth: HT-POT.

Heavy-duty wheel loader
Tracey Road Equipment introduces the Liehberr 542, a wheel loader using 25% less diesel fuel than comparable machines. Its continuously variable transmission synchs well with the 161-hp Tier 4i four-cylinder engine. Booth: S TRACEY

High-density round baler
Mabie Brothers introduces the Krone Comprima round balers eliminate the need for a cam track. The F155XC features the EasyFlow pick-up that's 30% faster. Its NovoGrip elevator teams up rubber-treaded fabric belts with horizontal slats to roll dramatically higher bale densities 4 feet wide and up to 60 inches high. Booth: HT-A5.

LED light fixture
Orion Energy System's energy-saving Ag LED light fixture is IP65-rated and UL wet-rated to withstand demanding interior environments. With up to 283,000 hours of use and 50% energy savings, it's ideal for free stall barns and milking parlors. Booth: I-20.

Loader bucket shoe
R2 Manufacturing's Edge Tamer controls the leading edge of loader buckets – perfect for moving snow and mulch, perfect for keeping the blade from surface digging. Optional 12-inch extender to the all-steel shoe helps carry limbs, posts and more. Booth: I-12.

Low-slip milking liner
Conewango's new Evolution XLO low-slip milking liner has a unique two- hinge barrel providing a controlled collapse while maintaining air channels. It reduces teat-end compression for more gentle milking. Booth: HT-3305.
